History

Stuart Braithwaite and Dominic Aitchison originally met at a gig for Ned's Atomic Dustbin in April 1991, and four years later added old schoolfriend Martin Bulloch to their ranks, forming the band Mogwai in the process. Stuart had been playing lead guitar in a band called "Deadcat Motorbike" up until that point. After playing a few shows the band expanded with the introduction of John Cummings on guitar, and Teenage Fanclub drummer Brendan O'Hare joined whilst they recorded their debut album Mogwai Young Team. {{Infobox musical artist | Name = Neds Atomic Dustbin | Img = | Img_capt = | Img_size = | Landscape = | Background = group_or_band | Alias = | Origin = Stourbridge | Genre = Alternative rock | Years_active = 1987-1995 2000-current | Label = spitfirepink | Associated_acts = | URL = www. ...

Mogwai Young Team, or simply Young Team as it is often called, is the first full-length studio album by the post-rock group Mogwai. ...


O'Hare left after the release of the album, before Barry Burns was brought in prior to the recording of Come On Die Young, the band's second album. He had already played a few shows with the band, as a flautist and as an occasional pianist. According to Stuart, the reason Barry was invited into the band was because he was a good laugh.[3] Since 1998, and for the recording of every album since Mogwai Young Team, the band line up has remained unchanged. However, fellow Scot musician Luke Sutherland has contributed violin to Mogwai's records and live performances. In 2000 the band curated the first edition of the British All Tomorrow's Parties festival. In 2004 they returned to curate one day of the Director's Cut of ATP.

Controversy

The band have never been shy to state their opinions, especially with regards to other musicians and bands. In a recent example, Stuart sarcastically described Annie Lennox's album title Songs of Mass Destruction as "really topical," and a title that was "so half-arsed it makes 'Mr Beast' sound cerebral."[4] Braithwaite also had a dig at the group Test Icicles after their split, saying "they've only been going for about three bloody weeks!"[5] Annie Lennox (born Ann Lennox on 25 December 1954) is a Scottish musician, vocalist, and Academy Award-winning songwriter. ... Songs of Mass Destruction is the title of the forthcoming fourth studio album by Annie Lennox. ... Test Icicles were a short-lived rock band formed in the UK, primarily influenced by indie rock but containing musical elements from a variety of genres (notably indiecore, hip-hop, crossover thrash and punk). ...


Perhaps Mogwai's most infamous feud has been against the band Blur. With both bands headlining different stages at T in the Park in 1999, Mogwai began printing t-shirts emblazoned with the words "blur: are shite" across the front. The first run of shirts sold out in a single day, and Stuart claimed the shirts showed a "dictionary definition" of Blur.[6] The Mogwai website has also carried tirades against Damon Albarn and Gorillaz from time to time. Blur are an English rock band formed in Colchester in 1989. ... T in the Park is a major Scottish music festival, held annually since 1994. ...

For the Gorillazs self-titled debut album, see Gorillaz (album). ...


James Blunt is another musician the band have created rifts with in the past, with Barry Burns claiming to have "spewed blood down dirty toilets with more talent than [him]," and that "his voice is annoying." Burns also took aim at the online music critic source Pitchfork Media, saying that Pitchfork’s staff were "not music fans" but rather a "bunch of website geeks."[7] For the American Civil War general, see James G. Blunt. ... Pitchfork Media, usually known simply as Pitchfork, is a United States-based daily Internet publication devoted to music criticism and commentary, music news, and artist interviews. ...

Mogwai (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (534 words)
Mogwai is a Scottish band from Glasgow, United Kingdom.
The band were originally signed to renowned Glasgow indie label Chemikal Underground, but are now distributed by different labels, such as Matador in the US and Play It Again Sam Records in the UK.
Mogwai is named after the creatures from the film Gremlins, although guitarist Stuart Braithwaite comments that "it has no significant meaning and we always intended on getting a better one, but like a lot of other things we never got 'round to it." [1].
Mogwai - Rock Action (Matador) (791 words)
In songs where the band members sing, the timing of the songs can be totally ruined as the band members' voices can only be used at an incredibly slow speed, or else the singer would misstep or sound off-key.
Mogwai is no metal band, of course, but the guitarist can be heard playing 1 or 2 notes in 3/4 or 4/4 time in far too many songs.
They borrow from one band one album, then hear something else and borrow from that; they are not taking the other works and creating a voice of their own.
